I missed all the rapture excitement, but better late than never: here are a few links for rapture enthusiasts ....
The Rapture, a 1991 film starring David Duchovny, Mimi Rogers, and Patrick Bauchau (rated R). I saw part of it on tv once and it was fairly depressing.
Christ Clone Trilogy, rapture trilogy by former National Security Agency analyst James BeauSeigneur that's a bit better than the Left Behind stuff. My favorite part - the apostle John, about whom Jesus said (to Peter), "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?", is still alive in the present in the story.
Finally, for a Catholic take on the rapture, here's a past article by Michael D. Guinan, O.F.M., a professor of Old Testament, Semitic languages and biblical spirituality at the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley ... Raptured or Not? .
